London Games Festival coming in October


The first week of October sees the first London Games Festival hit the city, with a mix of public and industry events scattered around the capital.

The events are ticketed, but most are free, and the week runs from 2-7 October.

The web site features a complete list of events, including Games Showcases at HMV in Oxford Street, Family Game Show at John Lewis on Oxford Street, a London Game Career Fair at the Café Royal, Cinema Showdown at Vue Cinemas, and Festival Fringe at 01Zero-One.

The Games Showcases at HMV ‘will bring together well known figures from the world of video games (and the real world too!) throughout the week. The week will kick off with celebrities competing against each other in a series of high profile tournaments, with the winners crowned the kings of the gaming world.’ whilst the Career Fair ‘provides the opportunity for game industry professionals, recent graduates and individuals from related industries, such as computer graphics, animation and film, to speak with leading companies in the game industry about career opportunities.’  Nice work if you can get it.

Sounds like a great gaming week.
